A Heat Like an Affliction

"That morning and noon had been warm, though the stirrings of a feeble breeze made weather not flagrantly intemperate; but at about three o'clock in the afternoon there came out of the southwest a heat like an affliction sent upon an accursed people, and the air was soon dead of it."
--Booth Tarkington, Alice Adams

So how's the weather where you are? ;-)


  1. Today is actually the first sunny, warm day in about two weeks. We've had rain and cloudy days... so unlike July! Oh well. I'm not a fan of the heat, so I'm happy in the rain.

  2. Becca: I like rain every now and then, but not continually. We finally had some today, and it was quite welcome!
